About Write Before Christmas:

You’ve probably heard of me.
Reclusive fantasy author turned famous when his series got developed into a mega TV hit.
Except now I’m way behind deadline, and the whole world is waiting to see what I’ll write next.
The pressure is getting to me, and I. Can’t. Write.
Cue: small town where people don’t recognize me.
Cue: my assistant insisting on a personal chef to keep me fed and nothing more.
Cue: finding the first bit of inspiration I’ve felt in months whenever she’s around…
Am I a walking cliche now, or what?
Dani Cooper seems to have her own hurdles to jump this holiday season. Newly divorced, looking for her next move. She’s the first person who’s seen me for me in way too long. And I see her, too–as way more than just an employee, a divorcee, a cook. She’s becoming my muse…
But when my Christmas deadline hits, will it spell the end of us, too?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

If you love the feel-good quality of a Hallmark Christmas movie, then Write Before Christmas is definitely a swoony story you will want to check out.

Matt is a well-known fantasy author hiding out in a small town following a scandal so he can finish his next novel before the next season of the TV show needs to start filming. Dani is a recent divorcee with a 19 year old daughter, struggling to get her life back together and gain some independence. Their paths first cross on a random walk around the neighborhood. But their worlds collide when it turns out that the reclusive author Dani just took a job housekeeping for is the cute guy Matt she’s seen — and spontaneously kissed — around the street.

The discovery of their true identities is not a dragged-out process, thankfully, so we get to see Matt and Dani without him hiding his true self from her. In fact, she becomes his muse during a time when his deadline is looming and the words aren’t coming out. She helps him come out of his shell and begin to trust people again, and he helps her gain a sense of independence and, in a roundabout way, career goals after 20+ years of being a housewife. I really loved that Matt and Dani are both over 40. They know what they want — a no-strings fling — and they don’t play games with one another. Their relationship starts out as a holiday fling, but there’s so much more simmering underneath the surface… And when Matt realizes what a mistake he’d made, his Grand Gesture to win back the girl goes hilariously wrong, but is better than anything he could have scripted himself.

Write Before Christmas is a great holiday escape! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
